拍品描述 吉林省造光绪元宝每元当制钱二十箇。20 CASHES。在放大镜下细看可见正面重铸痕迹,最明显痕迹为"20"的"2",原处应已有一个"2"字,重铸后看起来好似"2/2"。另外,"CASHES"中的"E"原本为"I"样式,重铸加笔划变为"E"。可知此枚模板经过重修,原本呈现"CASHIS样式",之后修改为"CASHES"。6点钟与7点钟方向之间表面有轻微瑕疵,但瑕不掩瑜。通体散发斑驳奶油朱古力和咖啡色,十分诱人。颇有趣味,即便是最顶级藏家也会为之心动。

CHINA. Kirin. 20 Cash, ND (1903). PCGS AU-58 Secure Holder.cf.CL-KR.19; Duan-1274; cf.CCC-485; cf.Y-128. "20 CASHES". Upon closer examination under magnification there are signs of re-working the obverse die. The most noticeable of which is that the "2" of "20" is punched over another "2" giving the appearance of "2/2". Another sign is the "E" in "CASHES" is a composite letter that was initially punched as an "I" that had the upper, middle and lower strokes added to make an "E". The clear evidence that the die had been re-worked with particular interest of the "E" shows that this die started out as "CASHIS" and was later modified to "CASHES". Minor planchet defect between 6 oclock and 7 oclock hardly distracting. Otherwise quite attractive with lovely smooth mottled milk chocolate and mocha patina. Very interesting and sure to excite even the most advance of collectors.
